Georgetown Home Care Announces Lowest Readmission and Rehospitalization

Rate in Company History for 2020

Rates significantly lower than US national averages; Year over year decrease of 32% for
readmissions; Success with every partner it works with

Washington, DC, March 02, 2021 --(PR.com)-- Today, Georgetown Home Care (GHC) announces its
2020 hospital readmission rate and skilled nursing facility rehospitalization rate are the lowest in the
company’s history.

Georgetown Home Care’s hospital readmission rate for 2020 was 3.2 percent, a 32 percent drop year over
year. GHC’s skilled nursing facility (SNF) rehospitalization rate was 0 percent in 2020. When compared
to the US national averages, these results are remarkable. The US national readmission rate for hospitals
in 2020 was 15.6 percent, the US national skilled nursing facility rehospitalization rate was 21.7 percent.
Overall Georgetown Home Care has seen a significant decrease in the readmission rate with every partner
hospital and SNF it works with, contributing to the great success GHC saw last year and continues to
build on in 2021.

"2020 was truly a challenging year for everyone but especially those of us working in healthcare," said
John Bradshaw, CEO of Georgetown Home Care. "The pandemic required all of us in the industry to
collaborate even more than we already were. The lowering of our readmission numbers year over year
once more, is a testament to how strong our partnerships with hospitals and skilled nursing facilities have
become."

Georgetown Home Care knows that to have a significant impact on reducing preventable readmissions
and rehospitalizations the focus must be on not only the key causes, but also the understanding that as a
company it plays a key role in the patient-centric care system. Given the unique and difficult year, home
care providers played a crucial role in keeping people out of the hospital when capacity constraints were
at their highest. The impact has proved meaningful.

Georgetown Home Care is the premier non-medical home care agency with offices in DC, Maryland, and
Virginia. Its mission is to ensure a better quality of life for elderly clients and their families by providing
dependable and affordable care. Georgetown Home Care is a locally owned and operated company and is
